Planning for the summer mercato has already started for AC Milan, and with that, there are plans to invest heavily in a new striker. However, the club could face competition for their primary target.
Whilst there were suggestions that Milan would look at different striker options in the winter market, nothing came to fruition, and the plans now point towards acquiring a new forward in the summer.
With these rumours, several names have been linked, such as Joshua Zirkzee, who remains a ‘concrete’ option, alongside Serhou Guirassy and Jonathan David. However, reports have suggested in the past week that the Diavolo’s ‘dream’ choice is RB Leipzig forward Benjamin Sesko.
MilanLive have reported that the Rossoneri may not have an easy route to the Slovenian striker. Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada consider him the ‘ideal fit’ for the position, but this is the consensus from other clubs. As a result, several other elite clubs are interested in him.
The report suggests that the biggest competition may come from Chelsea. There have been extensive reports about their interest in Victor Osimhen. If the Nigerian striker is too expensive, the Blues may divert their attention, given Sesko has a €50million release clause.
